What travelers are saying

"This trip is unbelievably fantastic. Two of the best rides of my life, were on this tour. The guides were very good and this was just the start, when we met them, at the hotel in Cortina. Cortina was the site of the 1956 Olympics, and is a small pretty village. Nothing was open the two nights we were there, so probably bad timing. Hotel was a typical ski village hotel, good Italian/German food, and very comfortable. Second day of biking was up an old railroad spur that is now a ski trail about 15-20 K up to a mountain pass called Cimabanche Pass, which is beautiful. We rode up in a snow storm, then rain, then finally clear skies. This was the number two best ride of my life. Starting out from the hotel in Cortina, up the old spur, through single track bike trails, past babbling brooks, up to this fabulous mountain pass. This is now where the fun starts. Mostly downhill on paved roads very little traffic, at good speeds, through the most spectacular valleys you would ever see on a bike ride. Breathtaking. It had to end back at the hotel for a big dinner. The best ride of my life was the last biking day out of Merano. We were bused up 1500 K, about 85-90 miles to Lake Resia, high up in the Dolomites, then rode around the lake, down, back to Merano. High mountain peaks, many valleys,small towns, many grape growing farms, scenery, the best, and cool brisk weather. This was truly a great bike tour, one I will never forget. The trip is rated easy, but maybe easy/moderate is closer. The Hotel in Merano is excellent, middle of old town, modern, has a thermal bath, rooms were very good. The town of Merano is a must see if in the area, small, beneath the high mountains of the Dolomites, good restaurants, lots of tourists."

What travelers are saying

"A Culture Trip curated trip is a must for anyone burnt out planning their own trips or going to a remote or unfamiliar area. Having a local insider was the highlight of the trip. From the moment we landed to the moment we had to go through security to leave, we were completely taken care of. Our insider gave us great recommendations for restaurants and was very adaptable to any situation that arose."

Culinary & Wine Tasting Tour Selection Trips

  • Due to the structured nature of tastings, private or public, it’s important to be on time. Some tours will pack a lot of scheduled stops into one day.
  • One of the best parts about guided food, wine, and brewery tours is you don’t have to worry about driving! However be aware that many wineries and breweries WILL NOT let you taste if you’re too inebriated and you may end up ruining the fun for everyone. So pace yourself!
  • Be open to trying different types of foods. That’s part of why you’re here! Encourage others on your tour to try new things and be open to discovering new tastes yourself.
  • Wineries are usually fairly chilly in temperature, so dress accordingly. Also, if you have a tour and tasting planned, you will most likely be walking on multiple surfaces including dirt and hard concrete. Ladies, might be a good idea to leave the stilettos at home!
  • Check with the tour operator if you have dietary restrictions. While most will try to accomodate, it's important to give them enought time to arrange alternate meals.
  • Cooking classes are a wonderful way to learn about local cuisine, as well as how to recreate your favorite dishes at home. Don't worry if you're not much of a chef, as many offer step-by-step guidance and help.
  • Even if you can't tell your Malbec from your Merlot, wine tastings can be a really fun group experience.
